Eat Right for Your Blood Type, diet and exercise

About 20 players showed up Tuesday afternoon. Elaine from Chilliwack came to play because pickleball in Chilliwack is cancelled in the summer. Thanks to Al for bringing cookies, grapes, oranges which we all enjoyed. So nice to see a new net since the old net had some torn holes. Sarah Morris will show Mike how to roll up the new net (covers four courts) by a machine next time.

Last week Joyce talked about her trip to Tajikistan, Kyrgistan last month that she learned about their food and culture. Today she explained why some people cannot digest wheat, it has to do with their ancestral genetic disposition and blood types. “I’m a Type O.” she said, “And when I eat according to my blood type I have unlimited energy.” (This information is not to be taken as medical or other health advice).

Type O is the oldest type of blood when hunters eat meat, they have high levels of stomach acid which contains a enzyme that removes cholesterol from fatty meats from the bloodstream better, they cannot tolerate some grains like wheat and corn, they should exercise vigorously. According to Wikipedia, about 40% world population have type O's.

Type A emerged about 15,000 B.C. when people were settlers and farmers who grow vegetables. When the more vegetarian blood type A (with weaker stomach acids) eats fatty meats, the thicker blood of A lacks the enzyme that blood type O has more efficiently for thousands of years to remove the cholesterol from the fatty meat. Blood type A (and AB) can get their arteries filled up with fat and calcium from eating diets high in saturated fatty acids (fat from meat). About 32% world population have type A's.

Type B emerged about 10,000 B.C. as tribes migrated from Africa to Europe, Asia and the Americas, they should eat a balanced diet and do moderate exercise. About 22% world population have type B's.

Type AB blood is rare – it’s found in less than 5% of the population. And it is the newest of the blood types. Until ten or twelve centuries ago, there was no Type AB blood type. Type AB is sometimes A-like, sometimes B-like and sometimes a fusion of both.

Eating the right food and exercise will help to maintain healthy weight and avoid certain diseases and ailments. With proper diet, the chance of disease is greatly reduced, coupled with exercise, enables your immune system to be its strongest. A strong immune system can make the difference between a longer or shorter life span.
